Archery is hot right now. With Katniss in The Hunger Games, Hawkeye in The Avengers and now Mirabel in Disney/Pixar’s Brave… Kids are clamoring to be just like the characters they see on the big screen. Zing was way ahead of the game.
Last year my boys begged for the Zing Crossbow. This summer, they have an entire line of bows available. We received the ZX Crossbow and the Zip Bak Bow. My boys were really excited to rip open that package.

One thing we learned the hard way? Don’t point the bow at the roof and expect the darts to come back to you. Thankfully it’s always windy where we live and within a day those darts finally fell onto the deck. Crisis averted.

What I really liked about the toys was how sturdy they are. They get used and abused daily in our house and the look and perform like new. I also love the price points. At $5 – $20, these are priced right for a family looking for some summer fun.
I have to admit, the boys aren’t the only ones who love these bows. I constantly sneak up on the husband and try to scare him by zipping one past his head (don’t try this at home kids!). He usually retaliates or mutters a few choice words under his breath. What’s the point of reviewing toys if I just let the kids have all the fun!

If you have ever been to my house, you know there is marker, sharpie, crayon, ink pen and even glitter on my walls. I have no idea why little ones think it’s necessary to draw a mural on a nice clean wall, but for some reason all three of my boys have. I stopped painting over them long ago. I just couldn’t keep up! Thank goodness the makers of BlankZ contacted me to see if I’d be interested in reviewing their toys. Yes!!! Finally something my kids can color on besides my walls.

My son likes playing with the DaGeDar toys (we reviewed them a while back) so when we received the new DaGeDar game for the Nintendo DS, he was super excited to play. I decided to let him review this one by himself.
Kids love tablets. iPads, kindles, and more. These devices are expensive and delicate. It’s hard to let kids play with them when you’ve shelled out so much cash for one screen. VTech has the solution, the Innotab. $80 for a tablet for kids is a lot easier to swallow than the $300+ other, more grown up […]

When I received the Huggtopus Kimochi in the mail, Chewy instantly grabbed him from me and ran around hugging him. He loves to take the little “feelings” and feed him. He thinks it’s hysterical that he can take them out and put them back in over and over! While he is still a bit young […]
“It will be great. We can make these tiny rubbery figures. The size of a lima bean, or maybe we should go a bit bigger… Just big enough to get lodged in a toddlers throat. Even better, let’s put these tiny things in a plastic ball that is perfect for cutting off the airway completely! […]

It’s fall and getting chilly. I love this weather, partly because I love rockin’ the sweaters and Uggs, and partly because I tend to knit a ton more in the fall than any other time of year. I already made Chewy’s fish hat, started a JAWS hat for T, made a couple of winter headbands […]
